German Program
The German program introduces students to the German language and Central European culture. The courses offered enable students to lay the groundwork for fluency in German and to enhance practical language skills for specific career purposes.

Students may choose either the Liberal Arts Minor or the Secondary Education Minor. Students may elect to submit a German studies Individually Designed Major proposal for approval in conjunction with our sister institution in Oldenburg, Germany.

The German Program seeks to educate students to become more effective participants in the global community by promoting international and ethnic awareness and sensitivity to other cultures.
